Skyfall will be the first IMAX Bond film

But it won't be filmed with IMAX cameras

Skyfallwill become the first Bond film ever to be converted to IMAX format, according to a new press release from Sony and MGM.

The film will be released in IMAX cinemas worldwide, although it has not been shot using IMAX cameras, so we won’t be treated to any of those Nolan-esque scenes in which the screen appears to expand.

Skyfall will be the cool, must-see event release of the fall, and releasing the film in IMAX only reinforces that,” said Sony bigwig Rory Bruer in the official press release.

“It is an honour and a privilege to be a part of this legendary franchise, whose iconic characters and electrifying action will only be amplified in the IMAX format," said IMAX President Greg Foster.

"We are excited to rejoin forces with our friends at Sony Pictures Entertainment and MGM and so pleased to work with Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, and Sam Mendes to bring their vision to IMAX and Bond fans around the world.”

Looks like those blue Speedos will be even more eye-popping this time around, then. Skyfall opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.
